According to his Vimeo bio, Australian artist Andy Thomas “specialises in particle simulation based motion graphics, inspired by nature and technology”. A simpler way of saying it might be that he makes shapes that react to sounds.
In the video below Thomas makes visuals for two bird sounds from the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision’s archives. It kinda reminds me of that scene in Ratatouille where Remy imagines the colours of taste.
Watch “Nightingale and Canary” below!
Love these “headphones” by sound artist Zimoun, once again ulitizing motors, cardboard boxes, and cotton balls. This is sorta the complete opposite of the last work I posted by him (329 cotton balls inside an abandoned tank in Switzerland).
Watch the video clip below!
I love Zimoun! I’ve posted the Swiss artist’s work several times now (see them all here), but this recent work is by far his most ambitious. He has ditched the cardboard boxes for the time being and installed his first-ever permanent work inside of a giant tank in Dottikon, Switzerland. 329 cotton balls attached to little motors bounce endlessly inside the space.
Watch the video below! My favourite part is when it cuts to the silence outside. I really want to visit this in person one day. Who wants to join me?
